Reaching the centenary in any section of matches or goals are milestones of different levels in the career of a footballer. There are centennial clubs with many members, such as those that reach 100 matches in the First Division. Others are more select. Reaching the centenary of internationalities with the National Team or goals as a professional are achievements available to few players. But no challenge that Sergio Ramos can resist, who can boast of the former (170 matches with Spain) and be on the verge of the latter. The Real Madrid captain is one goal away from reaching 100 in his club career (he has another 21 with La Roja). Something difficult to achieve for many forwards and which is a feat for a defender.

The de Camas debuted with Sevilla in a European game of the then UEFA Cup. It was a September 16, 2004 and he beat Hilario, goalkeeper of the Madeira National, with a header. A luck with the testa that he has later repeated on 53 other occasions, such as in that magical 93rd minute of the Lisbon final. Before wearing the Madrid shirt (with which he has 96 goals), he scored two more with the team from Seville: one precisely what his team would later become in a free kick in which his current coach witnessed exception from the sidelines. Zidane moved to unsuccessfully try to cover Sergio's missile.
Despite the fact that in recent times he has established himself as a specialist in penalties, the shadow of Cristiano Ronaldo for so many years has prevented him from feeding his scoring records at a higher speed. 19 of those 99 goals (19.19%) in his club career have been from eleven meters. All of them, except four, since the Portuguese left. In fact, he only threw one coinciding with the Portuguese on the grass.
By competitions, has scored 71 goals in the League, 13 in the Champions, 7 in the Cup, 2 in the Spanish Super Cup, another 2 in the European Super Cup and 3 in the Club World Cup. The majority (54) have marked them with the head, 37 with the right leg, 7 with the left foot and 1 with the chest. Five have been from outside the area, two of them from direct free kick.
Ramos has become one of the defenders with the greatest offensive vocation in history. He recently left Koeman behind as the top scorer in the league's 91 years. The Madridista account already goes for the aforementioned 71 goals against the 67 of the former Barça. And globally, he has surpassed legends like Beckenbauer in a ranking led by Koeman himself.

The captain has returned with the peephole aimed at the rival goal. He has scored five goals and It would be a postconfinition pichichi shared with Gerard Moreno if it were not for the double that Raúl García did to Levante yesterday. In the total calculation, Ramos is in his highest scoring season in the League (10 goals, second Real Madrid director after Benzema) and in all competitions (12). The last three White League games have opened with a penalty kick caused by one of the wingers. A habit that can give Ramos the opportunity to reach those 100 goals without delay.
